Drift: An exploration of Land and Water
The Paintings of Larry Deacon
Meet the Artist reception Thursday September 11th 6-8pm
Exhibition runs through to Oct 5th
The Studio Cafe is honoured to exhibit award winning artist and accomplished painter Larry Deacon.
Drift: An exploration of Land & Water traces Larry's excursions (mostly at canoe level) through the vast and diverse Ontario landscape. http://www.larrydeacon.com
Artist Larry Deacon is inspired by travels throughout Canada and the U.S., and is in constant search of something new in the vastness of the North American landscape. Whether viewing the majestic peaks of the Rocky Mountains or the rugged coastline of the eastern seaboard, Larryventures off the beaten path to seek out that forgotten boat, or deserted lighthouse on a foggy morning.
Larry reveals a natural artistic aptitude that expresses itself today in a contemporary realist style.
Over the last few years, Larry has devoted his full time to painting. His vivid jewel toned colour palette, bold shapes and crisp edges add liveliness to his distinct body of work. Larry has exhibited widely including his acceptance into the renowned McMichael Gallery’s Autumn Art Sale 3 years in a row and recognized as top 3 exhibitors in 2012 . Larry was also a finalist in the nation wide “Landscape” art competition in the Canadian Brushstroke Magazine.
“Drift” is the perfect autumnal tribute to summers end and we are honoured to present LarryDeacon to our Hintonburg Gallery.

OPENING RECEPTION & meet the artists October 8th 6-9pm
6:30 -7pm, Talk and Introduction by Hilde Lambrechts
(show continues through to the 19th)
A foreword by Hilde Lambrechts
"For the visual arts the human figure has always been an excellent subject matter to train, maintain and explore artistic skill, and furthermore it continues to be an effective tool to communicate with oneself and/or the viewer. The oldest art work ever found is a 233 000 year old carved figurine (Berekhat Ram, Golan, Israel). Today artists continue to capture the human figure using many different techniques and materials, but many of them don’t get the attention they deserve.
Figureworks aims to provide an opportunity to celebrate visual art of the human form. The organization puts the spotlight on artists, their works and the life models, which are essential to nurture their creativity and whose profession is an art on itself.
As the founder of Figureworks, I invite you to be a part of this movement. It is my wish for Figureworks to be a niche for everyone who loves art involving the human figure. I am pleased to say that the human figure continues to work for me." ~ Hilde Lambrechts (Founder)
